Force on Force
Ambush Alley Games have graduated to the big time signing a deal with Osprey Publishing to release their popular modern rules in full colour hardback. These rules cover modern skirmish wargaming in current hot spots. It appears you need around 10 figures for the regular armies and around 25 figures for iregular armies. Originally designed for 15mm, the ideal table size is 2ft x 2ft. Think DBA size. However, you can play in what ever scale you want. The rule book covers army lists for the Australians, Germans, USA, and British regular and elite units. A deal has been signed to release around 20 scenario books including a Vietnam and a future war version (think Battle Los Angles).
Neil from the Meeples and Miniatures Podcast has done a review of the rules and interviews with the authors and Osprey. Well worth a listen. (Episode 73) http://www.meeplesandminiatures.co.uk/
I got brainwashed into buying a copy. Don't tell the wife!
